Video review Sony Xperia Tipo
[Nggallery id = 65 template = techmaniak] plastics dominate, but the case has been made solid – the phone does not exhibit any tendency to creaking and squeaking. Importantly, the rear wall of the housing is well-folded and with an additional layer of rubber material, the smartphone is in very safe hands. Inclined to praise the overall housing Xperia Tipo, when it comes to housing. While the phone is a bit "boring" design, which bears no resemblance to the phenomenon of P and Xperia Xperia S, but it is also far lower shelf price and quality.
Little, and the current realities of working in a small resolution (320×480 pixels), but in everyday use works properly. Reaction to touch presents itself on average, sometimes not intuitive enough, barely perceptible to the screen rockburst. We need to involve the whole finger and repeat the process. It is annoying if you migrate to the Xperia Tipo some high-end smartphone, but after a few days of use, in most cases, already almost automatically engages a large area of your finger. Weak visibility falls into the sun. Fortunately, goes autumn, so a few good months, the problem is minimized. 😉
Two days is an absolute upper limit on what you can dream – rather celowałbym in loading the cells every day and a half. Against the background of HTC Desire C, who is waiting for his turn to test the new Xperia Tipo just falls relatively weak. You can update the firmware have been able to increase the efficiency of the device slightly, but the final word on the matter belongs to Sony.
From the beginning I had a concern that the 800-megahercowy processor, accompanied by 512MB RAM Android 4.0 will be able to uciągnąć ICS. On this day, I lean toward the fact that it is an absolute lower limit for the system. If the cell is doing quite well with a small amount of installed applications, to the extent that if you throw a large portion of "traps" with Google Play, a staircase begins. Phone can then slightly slow down, fast forward a list of widgets in the company is small, yet perfectly visible to the eye lag. Overlay graphics that Sony has proposed, in no way different from that unless we can find in high-end Xperia S. Maybe that is the problem here? Cutting out a few tacked to the application system could work wonders.
If you can play Angry Birds or related games that do not involve 3D technology, it super-modern productions dedicated to high-end devices is definitely not suitable for Xperia Tipo. Several titles will not run a few games, Cheating so mercilessly that simply can not be in it to play smoothly. There is no unambiguous answer to this, whether it is a phone for gaming.
Here hardware surprised me positively, as running smoothly and quickly. Despite very strong technical specification does not make any trouble or Facebook and Twitter and the use of mobile browsing – if only will you be able to get used to the tiny display – does not cause any trouble. Especially remember very well indeed fast finding WiFi networks and seamlessly connect with them. In this aspect, the Xperia Tipo holds good, high level.
There is no drama, but also far from perfect Xperia Tipo. The phone is able to play video files in popular formats, and sometimes it takes a bit of "escapism bandwagon" if you try to torture device quickly scroll to the desired point in the movie, but generally speaking, watching video on the Xperia Tipo possible. Nevertheless, after some time has passed, because low resolution devices is a real killer for the eyes. Music? Here it is difficult to attach to something. Uploading a song list quickly and the sound quality looks just fine.
As for the signal, I have no complaints. Mobile keeps him very well, does not show a high sensitivity to the "death grip". Android ICS in conjunction with the author's cap from Sony, is an environment-friendly and intuitive, so you just doubt that for some of you to connect with Xperia Tipo associated with any problems.
Oh, here was hard. Tiny keys default keyboard, standard, poor vocabulary from Sony. As for me, the keyboard in portrait orientation was simply not acceptable because of the size of the keys, the level is still somehow looked. I could not stand still for too long, and after three days on the device appeared Swype keyboard. The problem here may be the average response to the touch screen, but this keyboard falls a lot better than the system solutions offered by Sony.
Here we have a camera with a 3.2 megapixel sensor, with no LEDs illuminate. No more taking photos at night or in low light. In general, the camera sometimes tends to focus problems, it can be seen in the pictures the characteristic noise cameras with. You have to stretch and bend to cool photo shoot for Fejsa.

The device records video in VGA quality, which these days is certainly not top of mind technology. Lean toward finding that the mode of photo / video, the proverbial Achilles' heel Xperia Tipo. See for yourself what video quality can be drawn from this phone.

Summary, evaluation and review
Sony Xperia Tipo is a phone that probably will soon appear in the offers of many operators, as the model is available from the buck. Probably will be a relatively large interest in this handset, but in the jungle all the tips from a network of employees, keep a cool head and remember that the cell is not able to handle advanced gaming mode is really poor photo / video and a screen that stands out zero visibility under the sun. On the other hand, here is phenomenal WiFi mode, network functions work very well and the cells do not show any problems with the quality of the signal.
